ABOUT OUR HONOREE
“Fans will be over the moon to know that their favorite movie princess, Carrie Fisher was honored with her star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame! Carrie will join her “Star Wars” co-stars and fellow Walk of Famers Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford on this historic sidewalk” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “I am happy to add, that her star is just a few feet away from the star of Mark Hamill and across the street from the star of her legendary mother Debbie Reynolds!” added Martinez.
Actress, writer and daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher made her film debut in “Shampoo” and went on to become a cultural icon playing Princess Leia in the original “Star Wars” trilogy. Since then, she graced the film screen in such hits as “When Harry Met Sally,” “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Blues Brothers,” to name a few. Her television credits include “Laverne & Shirley,” “Sex and the City” and “30 Rock,” for which she received an Emmy® nomination.
Fisher’s bestselling novel, “Postcards from the Edge,” netted her the Los Angeles Pen Award for Best First Novel. Fisher penned the “Postcards” screenplay for the Oscar®-nominated film, starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. Three novels and two memoirs have followed: “Delusions of Grandma,” “Surrender the Pink,” “The Best Awful,” “Wishful Drinking” and “Shockaholic.” Fisher performed her one-woman stage version of “Wishful Drinking” on Broadway, which went on to be filmed for HBO and nominated for an Emmy® Award.
